Dave Jones’s insertion of his ignorance of economics and/or his political views into Phil’s Knight’s speech yesterday, as well as the recent topic of Peter Alexis being/not being “run off” has let me to start this topic.
I have been a long time lurker here but rare poster, due mainly to the fact that one cannot have a discussion of PSU and B1G basketball hear without the thread devolving into personalty battles, an injection of politics or being reprimanded for talking about “taboo” areas, such as mild criticism of a player’s performance or the lack of a particular skillset (‘would you say this to his mother?’).
I would love to talk more about recruiting, in game strategy, other B1G teams and road trip experiences (i recently finished a degree at UIUC and was at the Big ten Tourney in Indy last year). Yet it seems in game threads devolve into blaming the referees and other threads veer into personal attacks. Politics shows up in places where it shouldn’t and personal friendships (most discussions involving ED) bias arguments.
The purpose of this thread is the hope of getting more topics on this board to focus on an intelligent discussion of PSU basketball (and opponents) and less agenda driven.
